, our own phil lebeau with more details on that. >> reporter: good morning, kate. we're here at the l.a. auto so where as they get ready to open the show, a lot of talk is about what's happening with tesla. a few minutes ago, this tweet from elon musk, the ceo of tesla. he says why does a tesla fire with no injury get more media headlines than 100 gas car fires that kill hundreds of people per year? what he's referencing is the fact that the national highway traffic safety administration has opened a formal investigation into the model s battery fires. in doing so the agency said the investigation was prompted by recent incidents in washington state and tennessee that resulted in battery fires due to undercarriage strikes with roadway debris. nobody was injured, nobody was killed in either of the tesla model s fires and tesla this morning said it asked the national highway traffic safety association to launch a formal investigation. it brings up the question, will there be a rrl? this is what elon musk said at the deal book contract just last week when andrew ross sorkin asked him abo

. robert frank is here, phil lebeau is there. some of the states, folks, with the highest taxes also have the highest populations of millionaires. rob, you run the numbers on this. >> yeah. >> what did you find? >> big debate whether high taxes chase out the rich. i took a state by state millionaire count and overlaid the tax rates on those. some of the highest taxed states had the most growth in mull it ty millionaires, california number one in glowing multimillionaire population over the past year. the number one state on a percentage growth basis was massachusetts, that's also a pretty high taxed state and number one city for growing millionaires was new york city. with a 12 plus percent tax rate. so again, this could be despite the tax hikes in these places, not because of them. but basically this shows little correlation in how many millionaires a state can grow with the tax rates. >> really speaks, i guess, phil, more to the vibrancy of the economy. sometimes the sheer scale of the economy. i guess it should be no surprise that california would add the most. it's the biggest state a
